    Description: 〈div data-abstract-type="normal"〉 〈p〉Agmantinite, ideally Ag〈span〉2〈/span〉MnSnS〈span〉4〈/span〉, is a new mineral from the Uchucchacua polymetallic deposit, Oyon district, Catajambo, Lima Department, Peru. It occurs as orange–red crystals up to 100 μm across. Agmantinite is translucent with adamantine lustre and possesses a red streak. It is brittle. Neither fracture nor cleavage were observed. Based on the empirical formula the calculated density is 4.574 g/cm〈span〉3〈/span〉. On the basis of chemically similar compounds the Mohs hardness is estimated at between 2 to 2½. In plane-polarised light agmantinite is white with red internal reflections. It is weakly bireflectant with no observable pleochroism with red internal reflections. Between crossed polars, agmantinite is weakly anisotropic with reddish brown to greenish grey rotation tints. The reflectances (〈span〉R〈/span〉〈span〉min〈/span〉 and 〈span〉R〈/span〉〈span〉max〈/span〉) for the four standard wavelengths are: 19.7 and 22.0 (470 nm); 20.5 and 23.2 (546 nm); 21.7 and 2.49 (589 nm); and 20.6 and 23.6 (650 nm), respectively.〈/p〉 〈p〉Agmantinite is orthorhombic, space group 〈span〉P〈/span〉2〈span〉1〈/span〉〈span〉nm〈/span〉, with unit-cell parameters: 〈span〉a〈/span〉 = 6.632(2), 〈span〉b〈/span〉 = 6.922(2), 〈span〉c〈/span〉 = 8.156(2) Å, 〈span〉V〈/span〉 = 374.41(17) Å〈span〉3〈/span〉, 〈span〉a〈/span〉:〈span〉b〈/span〉:〈span〉c〈/span〉 0.958:1:1.178 and 〈span〉Z〈/span〉 = 2. The crystal structure was refined to 〈span〉R〈/span〉 = 0.0575 for 519 reflections with 〈span〉I 〉〈/span〉 2σ(〈span〉I〈/span〉). Agmantinite is the first known mineral of 〈span〉〈span〉〈img data-mimesubtype="gif" data-type="simple" src=""〉 〈span data-mathjax-type="texmath"〉 〈/span〉 〈/span〉〈/span〉〈span〉M〈/span〉〈span〉II〈/span〉〈span〉M〈/span〉〈span〉IV〈/span〉S〈span〉4〈/span〉 type that is derived from wurtzite rather than sphalerite by ordered substitution of Zn, analogous to the substitution pattern for deriving stannite from sphalerite. The six strongest X-ray powder-diffraction lines derived from single-crystal X-ray diffraction data [〈span〉d〈/span〉 in Å (intensity)] are: 3.51 (s), 3.32 (w), 3.11 (vs), 2.42 (w), 2.04 (m) and 1.88 (m). The empirical formula (based on 8 apfu) is (Ag〈span〉1.94〈/span〉Cu〈span〉0.03〈/span〉)〈span〉Σ1.97〈/span〉(Mn〈span〉0.98〈/span〉Zn〈span〉0.05〈/span〉)〈span〉Σ1.03〈/span〉Sn〈span〉0.97〈/span〉S〈span〉4.03〈/span〉.The crystal structure-derived formula is Ag〈span〉2〈/span〉(Mn〈span〉0.69〈/span〉Zn〈span〉0.31〈/span〉)〈span〉Σ1.00〈/span〉SnS〈span〉4〈/span〉 and the simplified formula is Ag〈span〉2〈/span〉MnSnS〈span〉4〈/span〉.〈/p〉 〈p〉The name is for the composition and the new mineral and mineral name have been approved by the International Mineralogical Association Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification (IMA2014-083).〈/p〉 〈/div〉
